I took a big step this year. I was asked to make a run for State House of Representatives in Michigan and after much thought, I decided that if I was going around town telling everyone to believe in themselves and believe in Muskegon, I had best back it up when opportunity knocks. It's a giant endeavor and I know that it's going to be a year filled with high's and low's and I am going to meet many people along the way. One of which I already met, and would like to introduce to you.
Dr. Rob Davidson is an ER Doctor in Fremont. He's running for the US Congress 2nd District in 2018 and I asked if he could find a few minutes to sit down and have a chat early on as I think his schedule is going to get really busy, really quick. My first impression is that Rob is truly a humanitarian. He's a caring father and husband, loves his work as a physician and when you hear him talk, it's minus the "edge" that so many people who want to work in politics seem to have on their voice. He wants to make sure healthcare is available to all, public education is protected, our environment is safe and that wage equality is there for people. Yes... people. He's actually worried about people.
The election is a year off, but as I mentioned...it's going to get busy. I asked for a few minutes with Rob o introduce you to him and he found the time. We'll be sure to keep our platform open to all candidates as the year goes by, we think that a shared platform is fair and everyone should have a chance. But for now, spend a few minutes getting to know Dr. Rob. We met at his house in Spring Lake for a chat.
It's going to be quite a year for both of us. I am thankful to the Dr. for a few minutes and I wish him the best in his run. We still don't have the 2017 elections out of the way yet, but you can count on the Muskegon Channel to do our best to give the candidates running for 2108 seats a chance to connect and tell you what's important to them and why they are seeking public office.
